Here’s a stunning summer cottage in the Baltic Island of Gotland. I love the simple treatments and major architectural statements. The loft is amazing, and I really like the light and airy kitchen.
The important thing to consider when trying to achieve a space like this is super smooth walls (this requires skim coating) and nice floors of a high quality, such as a nice real wood. The large windows also help, as well as the raised ceilings and skylights. Mainly though, attention to detail is important for achieving the feel of a nice modern structure.
